EP 94 GOODBYE AGENDA

For our final episode of Agenda we looked back on the past two years of the show and our previous segments, guests and highlights.

We were joined by FBi Radio's Music Director Amelia Jenner to chat about what goes into bringing so much diversity into the FBi Radio sound, her thoughts on festival lineups and her work with NECTAR, a booking, touring and events agency she founded along with Andy Garvey, Tia Newling and Jemma Cole.

We also heard Larissa Shearman’s Behind The Lens series, which tells the stories of female filmmakers. For episode 2 we met Pauline, a Yaegl woman and a filmmaker with many years in the industry. In this episode, Pauline discussed how her Aboriginality intersects with her filmmaking.


EP 93 XENOBLOOD & CHOSEN FAMILIES

For our second last episode of Agenda, we went a bit rogue with our music selection and played some of our favourite pop songs, from All Saints, Carly Rae Jepsen and M.I.A.

We also heard from writer Quinn Eades about Queerstories: Chosen Family Xmas and the release of the book Going Postal: More Than ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ - a collection of queer marginalised voices on the experience of life during Australia’s 2017 voluntary marriage survey, and in the year since. The book is being launched in Sydney at The Imperial Hotel on December 9.
